Hey Dead,

I upgraded mine over the weekend and found all my dead shows are still in Chronological order with the album artwork I put on it. Don't mean to contradict your statement and maybe I need to go hoe and carefully look at it but mine seems fine, in fact I just downloaded the 12/10/73 show from Charlotte on livedownloads and it came in fine to my iTunes right in between some of the other December 73 shows I have, but I will check this again tonight and get back to you. In fact I checked off new songs and shows to add to my iPod and that too worked fine with the upgrade! Have a good one

Can you access the sort features from the main library under 'Music'?

All I get is Songs, Albums, Artists Genres Radio Match. There is no option for 'date added' 'last played' etc. These features are still available under the sub categories. And yes, the shows are still in order by artist, date etc.

If I am missing something, I would love to know how to access the old features in that section.

I guess I misread your post. I do not sort my shows that way, as long as they come in with the right order of songs and the artwork I give it I am happy but I will check into what you are asking about and see if I can do those things and get back to you!

I get the same ad you dead, I don't see an option to sort by song. The closest thing to that is in the playlist section with recently added and played! Sorry man! I do like the new layout though and find it very easy to navigate since I never did what you would with your songs!

OK, fucking moron here I guess. Y'all have no idea how long I spent trying to figure this out.

If you are in the main library under Music, you have to select 'Songs' in order to get all your sort options for everything. Even though everything shows up and can be generally sorted otherwise. I don't know why it is different than every other area, but it is.

Like Mando I kept record of how mine was set up but could not find a way to put the settings back in.

As for the tracks out of order, that will be a different deal. I went through this on the i-pod and had the option of playlists or cover-flow. Changing between those I was able to get the tracks right without a lot of re-typing.

I had to type the track name for every show from '65-75 since I got them from a source other than Archive. Ain't skeerd of typing.

I recently upgraded, just to see what the issue might be... everything looks normal to me. (I had to upgrade to keep other iOS devices synched)

If you're still missing some columns, try this: Navigate to View > View Options and try turning on whatever's missing....

(I had a screen shot, but can't find the button to attach it any more...wtf?)
